Flight comparison site Skyscanner has seen its business double during 2013, the fastest in three years.

Its mobile strategy and global reach has seen its revenue increase 96% to GBP65.8 million (US$108.6m) in the year while its visitor and app downloads doubled.

The site now has 25 million unique visitors a month and has seen 30 million downloads.

Milestones in 2013 included the acquisition of Barcelona-based Fogg; increased investment from Sequoia Capital and new growth in the Americas including an office in Miami.

Shane Corstorphine, Skyscanner’s chief financial officer, said: “This last year has proven to be our most successful to date and underlines the importance of offering a truly global travel search tool to travellers around the world. We’ve built a platform to continue to support rapid growth over the coming years and we’re now investing heavily to ensure we can continue to provide a great service to users.”

Its growth has been driven by its flight search with rapid pick-up in the Americas and the Asia Pacific region.
